Happy Birthday

>> Tuesday, February 5, 2013

Hi Everyone,

I'm taking a detour from the Valentine's day cards today, to show off this little adorable little birthday boy.  My friend's son is turning 3 this month, so I thought this smiling Best Present Ever Cutie Pie Kid would be fitting for the occasion.  After coloring him, I fussy cut him and set him aside to attach to my card at completion.

I left a 1/4"border to better show off the colors of my layers of paper and went ahead and stamped my background in those colors using the Retro Starburst.  The Fanfare Square is "Nestie Friendly", so I used my die to cut it out and attached it to the card base.


I stamped the Silhouette Balloon in Versamark and red ink and sprinkled it with sparkly embossing powder.  I cut those out as well and attached them along with the Tiny Happy Birthday sentiment.  Unfortunately the photo just makes the balloons look dirty instead of festive, but they sparkle in real life...lol.

Did you know that DRS Designs will be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their stamp catalog this month?  Mark your calender for Feb. 20th, because that's when the fun begins!

Have a great day!

Karin
